You’ve spent some time in your neighborhood now and after driving up and down the block a number of times, you realize that your home’s curb appeal is not where it needs to be. It’s time to pick a new color palette for the exterior of your home so that it stands out and looks beautiful. While choosing new colors can be exciting, there are a few rules to stick to so that you actually add value to your home, see below:
- Stick to a specific color scheme. While choosing a variety of different colors can make your home stand out, it could be for all of the wrong reasons. Take a trip around your neighborhood and make note of colors that catch your eye.
- Keep the rule of three in mind. Choose at least two colors for your home’s exterior if the siding is brick or stone, but if you have a combination of the two or want the siding to be painted as the main color, go with a total of three colors. Pick a complementary color for the trim and an accent color for the doors, shutters and decorative trim.
- Don’t neglect the roof. Choosing the right roof color is key. We recommend choosing a more neutral color so that you leave yourself open to more paint color options for the rest of your home’s exterior.
- If your home has a combination of brick and vinyl siding, matching their colors can create a gorgeous curb appeal. Sticking to a matching theme when it comes to the brick and siding also allows for greater flexibility when it comes time to choose a trim color.
